At least 238 cats have been trapped on Google’s property. Homes were found for kittens and adoptable cats. And, as with many successful TNR programs, the colony’s population has declined across time. Today, only 68 cats, or 25 percent of the original population, remain. But now Google officials are considering terminating the program under the misguided belief that doing so will protect burrowing owls who live nearby.
Show Google that the public supports TNR
Google’s colony of cats is not the real threat to the owls. They are being unfairly vilified. The genuine threat to wildlife is habitat loss and ever-increasing human activities, like those at a nearby golf course and amphitheater.
We know from decades of experience that TNR is the only humane and effective approach to address community cat populations. Most Americans don’t support the policy of catching and killing cats. Please make sure Google knows this, too!
P.S. Please share this with your friends and family! We need as many people as possible to show their support for Google’s successful TNR program.
